In charge of community relations and publications at the Embassy, Kerem served as Embassy press officer during the Camp David Summit. He was vice.consul at the Israeli Consulate in Chicago, served the Ministry of " Foreign Affairs and was con- ducting officer for the press division of the Prime Minister's Office. Born and educated in England and the Hebrew University, Kerem served in the Israel Defense Forces, after which he worked as a journalist in Israel. He held top positions in many Israeli student organizations and led the Israeli delegation to the UN 25th Anniversary World Youth Assembly. Mary Diamond will receive the State of Israel Bonds' "Generations for Peace Award" at the dinner to begin with cocktails at 7:30 p.m. Mature and immature State of Israel bonds will be accepted at the dinner for reinvestment. According to an Israeli Bonds spokesman, mature bonds no longer Last Push For CJA, Needs Exceed Income As the 1979 Combined Jewish Appeal draws to a close in Orlando, $775,000 of the $1,000,(300 goals "set to cover only our community's most basic needs," for this year, has been "'booked with signed cards." The announcement from Campaign Chairman Jim Shipley, "leaves our community in a very awkward position of almost doing the very least we could to secure our own needs and answer the desperate call of world Jewry." Shipley commented that "our needs as Jews have changed dramatically since the Campaign began this year," referring to the sudden exodus of Soviet Jews, virtual bankruptcy of the Joint Distribution Committee, the terror facing Iran's Jews and the extreme price of peace which will leave Israel faced with a cost greater than its gross national product. "It is heartrending to face the realities of what we will need to help ourselves and others in the coming year," Shipley said. "We cannot say NO for the first time in history, to Jews in need. We cannot plead poverty to Jews whose lives depend as much on 'little old Orlando' as they do the rest of American Jewry." Campaign officials feel that if the 40 people who have previously given $500 or more and those 17 ] previous givers in the up-to-S500 range "would come forward this year as well and renew commit- ment" the campai]n would close between 875,000- $900,000. One final community-wide mailing will be done before May 30 because as one veteran campaign volunteer commented, "there simply must be enough people who would help if they realized how little that extra $]00,000 is in terms of human life, and how much it means to stand up and say 'we care' about our fellow Jews!" Orlando Technion Society Under Consideration To discuss the establish- ment of a Chapter of the American Technion Society in the greater Orlando area, a meeting will be held Tues., June 5, at the home of Ozzie Gaines, 119 Primrose Dr., Longwood, at 7:30 p.m. The Technion-lsrael Institute of Technology helps to insure growth and security to the State of Israel.
